The Wild Area (Japanese: ワイルドエリアWild Area) is an extensive area in the Galar region. It adjoins several towns in the region.
The Pokémon found in the Wild Area vary depending on the weather, which can vary wildly between the different subareas. Pokémon with higher levels also wander outside of the normal tall grass in many places. The areas north of the Motostoke River are home to Pokémon with higher levels overall.
Unlike the rest of the game (which uses a fixed perspective), in the Wild Area the player can control the camera using the left control stick.
An overview of the entire Wild Area
The Wild Area is composed of many subareas. The player first enters the Wild Area from the south, but the locations below are listed from north to south in accordance with the map. The Town Map's representation of the Wild Area is only a rough layout and may diverge from in-game borders.
The Wild Area appeared in SS005, where Ash and Go explored it. They witnessed a SnorlaxGigantamaxing, but it blocked a railroad line in the process, threatening to cause an accident. However, Ash and Go were able to make Snorlax move off the tracks, saving the train. Afterwards, in the same area, Go caught the Scorbunny that had followed him from Wyndon.
